For those who haven't heard of Sketchathon, it is an online drawing event that we started as a group last year and successfully hosted 25+ sessions. Sketchathon is a monitored and narrated online event where you as an artist are encouraged to take part in contests and warm-up drawing rounds to improve your drawing skills.
We have a clever timer keeping things on track, voice over man to make things interesting and occasional guests who love talking about art.
You could be from any walk of your drawing career, just getting started or already an established artist, and you'll take something away from this event.
So in order to make these events a success we have a few roles to fulfil. The host
You must have a powerful PC/ Laptop with faster internet connection to take up this role. Event reporter
Taking notes during the event and bringing the highlights to the members that might have missed it. Organiser
Sorting images into folders, keeping things tidy to ensure everyone involved has a great session Vice President of Tutorials
A guest speaker who will share a trick or a technique for less than 15 minutes. Guest
Everyone is welcome to take part but signing up before hand will let us know who you are. Greetors
The role of a Greetor is to introduce a new face to the event and help them take part in their first contest and answer any questions.
If you would like to take up any of the roles, note myself or e-mail (preferred) firstname.lastname@example.org
The next event will take place on the Monday 8th September 2014 at 10am - Noon
(London BST). There will be a timer counting down to this event as well with a link to the event. Yes, we are having just a two hour session as some of the previous session used to last all the way up to 10 hours and it was not healthy for the host and the team in charge.
See you there,
